polled believe that president obama deserves to be reelected. 54% say he does not. when asked if they're satisfied with president obama's handling of the economy, one out of every two people said, no, not satisfied, and with some 52% saying that they feel like the country is in worse overall condition than it was four years ago, these polls help define the challenge for the president and his team here at the democratic national convention. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. put these in perspective for us. >> well, look, here's the deal. the president knew all along what you and i have talked about, what your viewers have talked about is this, there are two questions in every re-election effort, and the first question is, does this guy, is this guy the guy you want to keep in the job? and then the second question is, is the other guy worth the risk? is he worthy of this challenge? and the president at this moment with just 63 days left until the election headed to charlotte to try to still rally his base has to admit t
trillion. both campaigns are on the trail today with president obama in toledo, ohio, rallying union supporters on this labor day, and on the right side of your screen, we are expecting congressman paul ryan to speak in greenville, north carolina, not far from here, in just about 15 minutes. voters in poll after poll have been telling us that dealing with america's red ink is a big deal for them, and both parties have had a hand in creating this debt mess as we stand poised to make some very troubling history. the question is, does either campaign have a solution to this problem? look at that number. stephen moore is senior economic writer for "the wall street journal", he's with me now. steve, it was four years ago that barack obama was out on the campaign trail red calling president bush -- ridiculing president bush saying that number 43, he was referring to him as, racked up, what was it, $4 trillion of debt all by his lonesome? and now barack obama has far exceeded that in just three years, president bush did it in eight years, racking up $5.36 trillion, that's over $4 billion of
a corner. president obama asked voters to hang on and give him a second term. some 368,000 americans just quit hanging on and completely gave up looking for work last month. the august jobs report shows only 96,000 jobs were added to our economy last month. that's a whole lot less than expected. the unemployment rate fell to 8.1%, moving in the right direction but only because so many people gave up looking for work. only 63% of working-age adults are in the workforce, that is the lowest level since 1981. translates to nearly 9 million able-bodnear nearly 9 million able body deed adults not getting a paycheck. back then 275 jobs were ordered. it slumped to 245,000 in june. august 96,000. this news comes as the candidates kick their general election campaigns into high gear. we are waiting for reaction from president obama, he's in the key battle state of new hampshire speaking at this hourment he's been talking for a few minutes but has yet to mention the job report. if he does we'll check it out. mitt romney is attending a rally in iowa. earlier he spoke to bret baier about the jobs repo
carolina. some troubling polls for president obama. new content one day before he accepts his party's nomination. welcome to a special edition of american life. i am megyn kelly reporting live from the democratic national convention in charlotte. we are told the american idol winner is about to take the stage for the better part of two hours. just up, the dnc's plans to hold the bank of america stage speech has been moved. folks are taking everything down. instead, the president will speak from here at the smaller, time warner cable arena. concerns about possible severe weather tomorrow night. however, a top democratic official also told fox news that there were fears it would be difficult to fill the 74,000 seat stadium. a series of new polls signaling for team obama. the president's favorability dropping. 47% in april, he was up 54%. among women, the numbers are even more concerning for the president. there has been a sharp drop. 46% say that they have a favorable opinion of the president, but in april, it was that 67%. look at that. the female vote is crucial for the president. i
obama's campaign is hoping to rip a page from the 2004 playbook of the george w. bush re-election effort. welcome to "america live," i'm megyn kelly. incumbents have historically enjoyed polling bumps following their party's convention, and the president's predecessor was no different. president george w. bush was up about nine points at this time in 2004 and rode that wave of enthusiasm straight into a second term. president obama is seeing a small bounce this week, and there are reports that he hopes to duplicate that 2004 race. but there are some very different challenges he faces this time. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. so the initial polls suggest that governor romney did not get a bounce from his convention, and the president did. maybe as much as a five-point bounce. and so what does that tell us, and how would he parlay that into victory as george w. bush did back in '04? >> well, megyn, as we talked about, romney on purpose split his bounce. he chose paul ryan early, got some juice out of that, kept it going
that might otherwise miss on election day. so if you're barack obama and you are both an incumbent and a democrat, you like the fact that this year is going to be the high water mark so far for early, in-person voting. megyn: they're saying that half of the vote is expected to come in early in most of the battleground states. half of the vote will come in early in most of the states including north carolina, florida, colorado, nevada, ohio, iowa. i mean, that's, that's critical. so if you look at this national race right now, tied up in so many of these polls, but then you get a different result, usually president obama winning when you look at the state-by-state analysis in ohio and florida and virginia and pennsylvania, you can't be happy about that if you're mitt romney, can you? >> no. and this is why democrats -- this is why incumbents and especially democrats have pushed for these early voting, that they really want it because it cuts into the time for mitt romney, in this case, to challenge the democratic incumbent, to come in and try to knock him down a peg. this is really
. the news is breaking across the globe this hour as you see president obama at a re-election event in golden, colorado, screen right. screen left, and during his campaign remarks, he is expected to talk about what we're seeing on screen right. live pictures of cairo where angry protesters are staged outside of the american embassy again. they have been throwing bottles, there have been clashes all day, and we will continue to monitor the events there along with the president's comments. we'll have a live report from our chief white house correspondent ed henry on what we can expect from the in just a few minutes. in the meantime, u.s. diplomatic posts are on alert this hour. we have witnessed protests in yemen, iraq, egypt, tunisia, bangladesh and, of course, the attack on a u.s. consulate in libya that left four americans, including the u.s. ambassador, dead on the 11-year anniversary of 9/11. that attack first presumed to be linked somehow to a controversial film made by a private citizen in america that depicts the prophet muhammad in a negative light, but now authorities are investigatin
an effigy of president obama. the chaos forcing businesses and public transportation to shut down in the country's main city. in just north africa and the middle east, protests have already sprung up in some 23 different territories, and with reports of a devastating homicide bombing that killed at least 12 people in afghanistan this morning, thicks do not -- things do not appear to be calming down everywhere. we'll have continuing coverage of the ongoing violence, plus new warnings from al-qaeda that more diplomats could now be in danger. first, though, another fox news alert on the political fallout from a hidden camera video of governor mitt romney that has been leaked online. a liberal site posting snippets of mr. romney speaking to supporters earlier this year. we're told that we could see more of the video any moment now. they said they would be releasing it early this afternoon. and the material that has been released, governor romney talks about people who would most likely support president obama and not governor romney come november. listen here. >> there are 47% of the
in part due to that film. president obama will speak on his mideast crisis that we will watch unfold, perhaps within the next hour. we are told it will be up in the next hour. we also have a lineup of experts asked for some in-depth analysis of what we are seeing here. the anti-american violence spreading across the muslim world. the political fallout back here at home. coming up, take a look at our lineup. the former white house chief of staff, general jack keane and michael reagan will join us to talk about his father's experience in the 1980s with libya and other international crises. also, outraged over an elementary school project that some children were terrified by. children were told to drop pictures of the 9/11 attacks. including people jumping from the twin towers. and new reaction trying to boost the plan of the fed. why some express concern about ben bernanke's plan. that is coming up next. >> is as a main street policy. what we are about is trying to get jobs going and create more employment. we are not promising, you know, a cure to all these ills. but we can provide so
throughout the world and reportedly chanting obama, we are here to sacrifice for osama. this is 11 years after 9/11. a second attack occurred in libya. it had been even more spending. u.s. ambassador krista stevens, and sean smith and two other individuals were all murdered. stephen worked tirelessly to help the libyan people against qadhafi. now libyans are worried about the violence spreading elsewhere. we have greg live with more. reporter: we are getting more information about the tragic event as the day goes on. along with the libya ambassador, chris stephens and sean smith, two other americans killed. their identities are yet to be made public. believed to be a security issue, they were killed at or around the u.s. consulate in the eastern part of libya. it was a tumultuous event in libya. we have run into a lot in this region, according to the secretary, secretary clinton, he was committed to american values and interests. it is believed by islamists and others, it started off as a protest. it got a lot of traction in the internet throughout the region. then things got very violen
am met megyn kelly. president obama addressing u.s. today and what we were told would be a speech. the president devoted time saying that the united states wants to resolve u.s. diplomacy, believing there is time to do so. his remarks, once again, reflects witchery muscle, unveiling a new drone that it says complies with a range of over 1200 miles and covers much of the middle east, including israel and many u.s. military bases. what is more, iran says it wants to develop a drone with attack capabilities. ed henry is live in newark city with more. reporter: overnight as well, we learned that iran test fired four missiles that are designed to hit warships. is giving you an idea i say are how high tensions are. he has been demanding what he calls redlines from the obama administration in terms of some sort of an idea of exactly at what point when iran reaches a nuclear threshold. at what point would the u.s. take military action to stop them from moving forward. the president made clear that he still believes the tough sanctions put in place against iran need more time to work. fran
been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab
of 9/11 president obama and governor mitt romney are taking a break from the campaign cycle, suspending their negative ads out of respects for the victims. however, a moment before we went on the air we got a report that senior obama campaign adviser david axlerod sent out a tweet challenging governor romney's tax plan and offering a kind of attack against him. that is just breaking. we'll have more on it just ahead. >>> well, brand new reports suggesting that national security is not necessarily at the top of president obama's list of priorities. data reportedly show that is the president skips his daily intelligence briefings more than half the time. white house press secretary jay carney says it's not true. >> he gets it every day, okay? the president of the united states gets the presidential daily briefing every day. there is a document that he reads every day when he is not -- well, he always reads it every day because he's a voracious consumer of all of his briefing materials, and when he is physically here, most days he has a meeting in his office, the oval one, with -- [laughte
along with the poster of president obama. one man promising more violence to come. >> translator: the infidels should correct themselves, otherwise we will continue to protest, and we are ready to sacrifice ourselves in the islamic way. megyn: here now lieutenant colonel oliver north, fox news military analyst and host of "war stories." colonel north, here we go again. afghanistan obviously no stranger to attacks on our troops, but there are several reports linking some of the violence we saw over the weekends to these protests and this anti-american sentiment we're seeing explode right now over the middle east. your thoughts. >> well, this is reaping the harvest of the obama team failures over the course of the last three-and-a-half years. they perceive weakness. we have, basically, precipitated a global jihad with a naive carterresque disengagement policy. this is jimmy carter on steroids. i remember well what happened in 1979. he was shocked and surprised, those were his words, about the sacking of the u.s. embassy in kabul, of all places, and the murder of a u.s. ambassador.
of president obama. in bangladesh, they burned a makeshift effigy in protest. in india, authorities taking away protesters and blocking internet access. in nigeria, several thousands taking to the street, crying death to america. can you believe this? in malaysia, u.s. citizens told to avoid areas. in uganda, massive protests outside of the the american embassy. and in denmark, they are gearing up for demonstrations planned. rick leventhal is covering it live. reporter: there was plenty of advance warning that things could get ugly today, prompting a wave of closures, embassies, consulates and several other american and french embassies shut them down and indonesia, nigeria, alicia, and others. the government called for peaceful protest, but injury trust tour flags. demonstrators ransacked and set fire to attend movie theaters and set fire to other buildings. at least 15 people were killed, including a driver for a local tv station. in karachi, it got even worse. an protesters exchanging fire from at least a dozen were killed. nearly 100 injured there. more movie theaters were torched along wit
/wall street journal poll shows just 41% of independent voters approve of president obama's handling of foreign policy. that is a significant drop, 12 points, there just last month. -- from just last month. fox news digital politics editor chris stirewalt joins us right now. and so the president is doing well in many of these head-to-head matchups including the nbc poll, and yet when you ask that -- that's the overall number i'm talking about -- but when you ask independent voters how they feel he's doing on foreign policy, it appears the events of the past couple of weeks have had some impact. >> very clearly. and here's the deal, megyn, we talked about this at the time that trying to get a grasp on what the political implications of something this large, this complicated and this far-ranging are very difficult in the moments immediately after the death, the killing of the ambassador. and immediately as these protests were starting. now we have a good poll, a quality poll to measure how the president's doing on foreign policy since then, and the answer is poorly. though the original assessment
in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear, a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes what is ahead and what is willing to be done as a leader. megyn: president obama continues his campaign again today. megyn: off to the critical swing state of virginia. new polls show the race tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of this discussion over polling and who is where, is ignoring a much larger story. the rise of the independent vo
demonstrators throwing a u.s. flag with an image of president obama as a dog onto flames chanting "down with america." one thing the u.s. and pakistani governments to take action behind the film maker behind the video, and if they do not, they threaten suicide attacks on u.s. consulates everywhere. what you're seeing may be the tip os the iceberg -- tip of the iceberg. and adding fuel to that fire, the pakistan government has called for a national holiday tomorrow for what they call peaceful demonstrations. leland vittert is streaming live from cairo where the anti-american protest movement first erupted. re rand? -- leland? >> reporter: this shows the continued anger that is out there on the streets over this video. what's interesting is that no one we have talked to either who was involved in the demonstration or who organized the demonstration has actually seen this movie, and that shows you the level at which people who want to organize extremism are trying to use this video as a lightning rod and, boy, is it working in pakistan. dozens of people injured as they tried to storm the u
to conflict with the position of president obama, at least not publicly and that the u.s. and israeli governments do share a common goal. and i should say this too. the israeli prime minister, before embarking to the united states, made remarks briefly yesterday on the holiest day, right before the holiest day in the jewish calendar, yom kippur. he said this speaking about mahmoud ahmadinejad speaking at the united nations on that very same day. and i quote. on this day when we pray to be inscribed to the book of life a platform was given to a dictatorial regime who tries at every step to sentence us to death. it is position of the israeli prime minister if not stopped iran will developed enriched-uranium that could be used to make a bomb as early as spring of 2013. we expect him to elaborate on that in just the next few moments. megyn. megyn: david lee miller, thank you so. there was, as we've always heard from iran some bellicose language from its leader in the united nations. israel will have the chance to respond after mr. netanyahu speaks, we will be joined live right here for re
